Never miss another 'Dave Spikey' show
Words Don't Come Easy: Dave Spikey
Inspired by Dave's fascination with the vagaries of the English language, this hilarious new show examines many of life's situations where words really don't come easy.
These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, rubbish school trips, magazine poems, adolescent chat-up lines, TV news speak and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy through surreal to the ridiculous.
Throw in a Champion the Wonder Horse sing-a-long and you have all the ingredients for a rich and spicy comedy casserole or as Dave would describe it “a sort of Lexicon-carne ... sorry!”
A former haematologist turned comic with a style that walks a line between the commonplace and the surreal. He is a British Comedy Award-winner and member of the Peter Kay's star-studded 'Phoenix Nights' team on Channel 4.
'Not only a very funny accomplished comedian, but one of the finest raconteurs around' (Time Out)
'Down-to-earth comic genius' (City Life)
'Spikey's gags are the stuff of stand-up dreams, his interplay and analysis the basis for clever, laugh-after-every-line comedy' (Leicester Mercury).
